When the former St Joseph’s Convent in Østerbro, Copenhagen, was converted into a modern care home and co-housing residences for seniors, HITSA was involved in creating a green setting and ensuring functionality for the outdoor spaces.
Our FHR shelters have been supplied in a stylish combination of corten-steel doors and side panels and a sedum roof. The shelters are extra large, allowing space for electric scooters, for example.
We have also delivered specially designed entrance shelters in collaboration with RUBOW arkitekter. The glass roofs are supported by a simple corten-steel structure. The design of these modern porch roofs interacts attractively with the historic surroundings.
Our rectangular LINN planters, also in corten steel, have been supplied in a bespoke cross-shaped version as a nod to the heritage of the site.
Corten steel is a recurring material throughout at St Joseph’s. From our large selection of litter bins and materials, the FJORDPARK 4 litter bin has been chosen in corten steel. The warm, rust-red surface blends nicely with the red brickwork of both the new and old buildings, and likewise matches the mahogany of the benches.
HH20 BIG bicycle racks have been installed for the bikes of both residents and visitors.
St Joseph’s care home and co-housing for seniors received the Copenhagen Municipality Building Award in 2021. We are extremely proud to be part of this very special building project.
